Bookings way up and buyers sign on for five star Lough Erne resort after hosting G8 summit
$15 million property attracting serious bidders vying for ownership
The Irish hotel that played host to world leaders at the G8 summit in County Fermanagh has recorded a three-fold increase in bookings since the start of the month.
According to the Herald the luxury Lough Erne resort hotel, which hosted President Obama and Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny earlier this month, is currently on the market and could reportedly be sold by the end of the summer.
At least five prospective buyers are currently vying for ownership of the five-star resort, which is on the market for around $15 million.
The resort's profile was significantly raised by the global publicity arising from the two-day conference earlier this month.
Pictures of the world's most powerful leaders including president Obama, Russian premier Vladimir Putin and German chancellor Angela Merkel relaxing by the banks of Lough Erne helped showcase exactly what is up for grabs and has stimulated a rise in bookings.
Brian Lavery, the managing director of CBRE in Northern Ireland, which was appointed by joint administrators KPMG to handle the sale, said there was significant interest from across the world.
'We would be hopeful of going through the process and allocating a preferred bidder by the end of the summer,' he told the Herald.
Meanwhile he added that bookings to the resort are up significantly.
'We can see that bookings are up. I thought the resort looked excellent on the television and in the newspaper photographs,' Lavery said.
The 120-bedroom golf resort and spa opened in 2007 but went into administration in May 2011.
Once valued at $46 million, it boasts two championship 18-hole golf courses, including one designed by Ryder Cup record holder Nick Faldo, as well as a golf village with 66 top-quality lodges.
